WASHINGTON—White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is expected to resign in coming days, CNN reported Friday.

Kelly, who assumed the role last summer, has been rumored to be eyeing a departure for months, but the relationship between him and the president has reportedly gone cold.

Trump is scheduled to hold a dinner with senior staff Friday night.

If Kelly does depart, it will be part of a larger shake-up within the administration.

The Trump campaign announced Friday morning that Bill Stepien, the White House political director, and Justin Clark, the White House’s Director of Public Liaison, will both be leaving their positions to join the president’s reelection campaign.

In addition, Trump is expected to announce nominees to fill the positions of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and Attorney General Shortly.

Bloomberg News reports that State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert will likely take the reins at the U.N. while the Washington Post reports that former Attorney General William Barr will assume the top spot at the Justice Department.

Trump is leaving the White House Friday morning en-route to Kansas City, Missouri and could address the series of reports from the South Lawn as he departs.
